How is Community Prep School Different?

Community Prep School BuildingThe CPS staff, culture and curriculum intentionally re-direct students toward high school graduation by offering programs and experiences that allow individuals to “activate a purposeful plan for life.”

CPS gives students the opportunity to take real college courses and graduate with skills that prepare them for work and career after high school.

Our dedicated and highly-talented staff work one-on-one with each and every CPS student to guide them through a series of self-paced and flexible-scheduling classes and programs. Our individualized programs help CPS students examine their futures and answer critical life-staging questions:

  • What am I passionate about?
  • How can I turn that passion into a plan for my life?
  • What are the steps I need to make to get that plan working for me?
  • Do I want to pursue my passion through college?
  • Do I want to go on to work in the professional field of my passion?
  • What is my plan for a successful life beyond a diploma or GED, and how will I get there?

CPS is an Open-Entry/Open-Exit school, which means that students can enroll and graduate from CPS any time during the school year. We serve high school level students through the age of 21.  Flexible scheduling allows students to learn at their own pace, around the work schedule or family obligations that they are committed.
